En route to decontaminate Ariannus, the Enterprise encounters a reportedly stolen shuttlecraft from Starbase 4. Aiding the pilot's recovery the ship finds itself caught in the middle of a bitter intractable racial conflict...
This is The Original Series - dealing with social issues in a science fiction setting, because it really matters what side your colour is on... One thing against this episode is the sudden need to do rapid zooming in and out on the red alert lights. First time we see a self destruct sequence in Star Trek... although it's very laborious to get it going!

Wow, a very abnormal ending - no resolution, no happy banter between Kirk, Spock and McCoy. That's just it.
